• SmackDown Star’s Push Begins With Interesting Storyline
According to the Wrestling Observer, Vince McMahon is planning to push Mandy Rose on SmackDown Live.
Vince is planning a push for Mandy that would be similar to what Lana got last year (but it failed).
This is the reason why WWE has begun using Mandy more & more as of late.
It looks like Mandy’s push has begun with her current feud with former SmackDown Women’s Champion Naomi.
She decided to go after Naomi’s husband, Jimmy Uso, on last week’s SmackDown.
Mandy tried to seduce Jimmy for a kiss under the mistletoe in a PG way and below is what she said:
“Uh-oh…you know what this means…Oh, Jimmy, honey, you don’t know what you’re missing.”
You can watch it below:
If WWE wasn’t PG right now, then this Mandy Rose – Jimmy Uso segment would’ve looked something like this:
During this week’s SmackDown taping, Sonya Deville faced Naomi in a singles match. Sonya ended up winning the match when Mandy distracted Naomi by showing a photo of her in just a towel on the titantron and saying that she sent it to Jimmy Uso.
Below is the photo that was shown:
